Our standard stock Veneered MDF boards are a commercial grade A/B and suitable for a broad range of projects including furniture manufacture, interior fit-out, shop fitting and wall panelling. The A grade veneer covers the face of the board, and B goes on the reverse. The two most popular wood veneer species in the UK are White European Oak and Black American Walnut. Being so widely in demand causes a lot of strain on the manufacturers to obtain quality lumber and to remain competitive in the market. It is why the two veneers often fall short of customer expectations; therefore, whenever possible, we buy these products in a higher, A+ grade.
For customers working on high-end projects, we offer some veneered boards in a Superior grade. The veneers are initially graded in their appearance and then carefully matched. The grading criteria includes natural defects, colouration, veneer leaf-width and the overall appearance of the panel. The boards are then veneered and labelled in batches to give maximum appearance consistency between individual sheets, which is essential on larger projects.
